God is light and within it, there is no darkness
This book was made with much love and thought. The
ideas stated have been thought about and collected
over the period of a year. When I started out my only
motive was to make a book that would help in personal
and global positive change. Within good time the book
became so much more it became a guideline to living in
a new state and a new positive/productive way. Many
people will fi nd that most of the ideas in this book ring
a truth. My only wish is that people will pick up on this
ringing vibration of truth and apply it to their lives.

About the author (2011)


The Author, Professor Festus Adu is one of my close associates in the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan. Professor Adu attended the Ukrainian Agricultural Academy, Kiev in the former USSR where he graduated as Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 1973. He was the Head of the Viral Vaccine Research Unit at the National Veterinary Research Institute Vom, Nigeria where his love for Virology began. He attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA for his Masters degree deepening his knowledge in Virology. He capped it up with a PhD degree in Virology in 1987 at the Department of Virology, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan. He became a professor in the same Department in 1996.

As an expert in Enterovirology and Paramyxovirology, Professor Adu has made his impact felt in the discipline of Virology and Laboratory Medicine. His work in Polio diagnosis led to the designation of the Department of Virology as the WHO National Polio Laboratory in 1996. As Director, with the collaboration of the WHO and Federal Ministry of Health, he nursed and nurtured the Laboratory to the status of a National Laboratory with regional function.
His research activities have taken him to many parts of the world where he has come in contact with collaborators most of who have extended fellowship and training facilities to his students. He is a Visiting Researcher/Scientist to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He has served in a number of national and international Organizations. He is a Member of the Expert Review Committee on Polio and a Consultant Virologist to the University College Hospital, Ibadan. He is a member of several learned Societies. Professor Adu in his many years of teaching and research has graduated several undergraduate, Masters and PhD students.
It is my fervent belief that even after Professor Adu has retired from the classroom, this book will continue to provide an excellent bridge between him and prospective virologists in future.
Hearty Congratulations on this laudable achievement

The book-Viruses and Their Methods of Identification- is an eminently readable book that presents in adequate detail, the basic principles of virology and describes simple, optimized techniques for efficient diagnostic virology laboratory practice. The book is unpretentious but authoritative, reflecting the author’s more than three decade experience as research virologist and teacher.
